Senior citizens not only have some great stories to tell, but they are also valuable contributors to the vitality of our community.
To encourage and support our “Silver Citizens” for their contributions to their communities, the Clark County Commission on Aging has established a program to recognize folks 65 and over by means of an annual award presented at the State of the County event.
The award is open to any county resident 65 years or older who has enhanced the community through their life’s work, engagement of others, volunteerism or selfless acts of service to the community. Service in any field of endeavor will be considered (e.g., education, radio, television, business, healthcare, art, music, journalism, faith-based, athletics, politics, volunteer service). A couple may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in service and various community endeavors.
All nominations must be received no later than 5:00 PM, Thursday, February 13, 2020. Award criteria and nomination forms can be found on the Commission on Aging’s webpage.
The Commission on Aging, supported by the Clark County Council, is a nine-member volunteer group that implements the Aging Readiness Plan and provides leadership addressing the needs of aging community members.
